Première of Peter Jackson’s docuseries, The Beatles: Get Back
November 25, 2021 @ 8:00 am - November 27, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
The long-awaited three-part documentary series directed and produced by New Zealand-born Peter Jackson is here at last. The Beatles: Get Back covers the making of The Beatles’ 1970 album, Let It Be, which had the working title of Get Back, and draws from material originally captured for Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 documentary of the album. Conceived originally as a feature film, each episode of The Beatles: Get Back is approximately two hours long.
Oscar-winner Jackson, best known as the director, writer, and producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy, describes The Beatles: Get Back as ‘a documentary about a documentary’.
‘Our movie doesn’t show the breaking up of the Beatles, but it shows the one singular moment in history that you could possibly say was the beginning of the end. There’s no goodies in it, there’s no baddies. There’s no villains, there’s no heroes. It’s just a human story.’ – Peter Jackson
The VIP London première takes place on the evening of Tuesday 16 November.
Those without the golden ticket will have to wait a little bit longer for its release on Disney+ consecutively on 25, 26 and 27 November.
